Lit Cosmetics Glitter: Beach Baby, Pretty in Pink, Twisted Sistah

Something I have learned recently- Glitter is a serious PAIN to photograph!

Glitter is so dependant on the light hitting it at different angles to give that sparkle, that a photograph really downplays its awesomeness. It sucks. I’ll use glitter and in person it looks AWESOME, and in a photograph it looks like colored sand. No fun!

I apologise for this and all future glitter posts in reguards to the awesome-glitter-factor being mediocre at best, but trust me, at least for Lit Cosmetics, these are really fun and sparkly in person!

Before this, I had never used a neutral colored glitter. When I thought glitter, I immediately thought of bright colors and being super flashy.. my mind never thought “hey, glitter can be used in an everyday, wearable look!” 
Because the film world is turning to HD, you start to notice glitter being used more and more on camera- it just looks better than shimmer, which can appear oily. I noticed this a lot when The Voice started their live shows- ALL the girls wore glitter, and it was gorgeous!

I recently did a tutorial titled Golden Beach Baby (appropriate!) and it featured this Beach Baby Glitter, and it was so pretty! The glitter was noticable, but not over-the-top, and looked awesome on the lids.

    I think it’s so neat that a Canadian brand is making such a splash in the makeup scene. I remember the days before Lit took off, and the main owner of the company was on Dragon’s Den (a TV show in Canada comparable to Shark Tank). It feels like they’re “local”, too, as I’m in Edmonton, Alberta and they originated in Calgary.

      When I asked them about that, they said absolutely! They said that their glitters are not made from cut metal :)

    These are so pretty ! I wanted to buy glitters but didn’t know which one to take. Appart from that brand do you have any other brand that you would recommend? Thanks !

    • Jessica Allison says:

      I can’t say this enough: TKB trading. It looks like they’re currently switching suppliers, but their glitters are microfine, eye safe & come in tons of colors.

      Oh, and they’re like $2 a jar!

    Can’t you take pictures of the glitter from different angles or move the light and then photoshop it together to one picture. I think they do it when they take pictures of cars to show the shape of the car :)

    If you blurr the photo while taking it or using photoshop; you can deffenetly see the sparkle and the holographic awsomeness of the glitter.

    How does the Lit glitter compare to the Eye Kandy glitter? I’ve noticed that by the end of the day with the eye Kandy glitter I have lots of fall out below the eye.

    Hi! :D Can you make a video for different ways of using glitter and what your fav glitters are and stuff? Pretty please with sugar on top? :D

    Lit is an amazing product we sell in our shop to make up artists and gals from 10-70. The comment about the HD TV resonated with me, I am seeing it more and more and this is such a great product for that.
    Regarding the comment on fall off at end of day. This is the best for staying power, great base product to keep the glitter in place.
